How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Fig Trees - Brown Turkey
I bought one to give as a gift and it was so nice that I bought a 2nd one to give away
It is a healthy plant. However the delivery driver did not follow the arrows on the box.He sat it down upside down and 5 stems of the plant broke off. It should rebound in time.
The tree came and was packed well and appeared alive . Was planted in a planter with mixed potting soils. And placed in the sun . It all appears good. Will know more when Spring comes and planted in its home place in the yard . Thank you
Arrived quickly and in perfect health.
